Be Wicked Cool! Fresh with Tom’s of Maine
In my house it seems like back to school also means back to paying more attention to your personal hygiene. My 10-year old daughter actually asked me to "smell her breath" before heading off to school this morning. I about fell to the floor in shock. This from the child I had to fight with all summer long to shower. All I can say is "Thank Goodness for School!" because I was at my wits end. Now she's all about showering, using her deodorant and even brushing her teeth after breakfast. Thankfully I had Tom’s of Maine Wicked Cool!™ Deodorant all summer long with the added protection or I may not have made it this far. My daughter actually prefers products that are catered to her, I think it makes her more apt to use them. If they are "adult" products she is more apt to tell me she doesn't "need" them because she isn't an adult. Thankfully many brands like Tom's has seen the need for kid friendly products to cater to their individual needs.

Wicked Cool! Toothpaste
Sometime between ages 8 and 12, most kids are ready to leave fruit and bubblegum-flavored toothpastes behind. They start to be concerned about fresh breath, but aren’t quite ready for the strong mint flavors found in adult toothpastes. Tom’s of Maine is making brushing teeth “Wicked Cool!” with its first natural toothpaste designed for kids ages 8 and over. This mild mint-flavored toothpaste fights cavities, strengthens enamel and freshens breath. Consider what’s inside your tween’s toothpaste and opt for a natural toothpaste from Tom’s of Maine that’s dye-free and never contains any artificial sweeteners or flavors.

Personal care leader Tom’s of Maine wants to help teachers inspire kids to learn about the planet and make a difference in their community, which is why, in partnership with DonorsChoose.org, they recently launched the $1M Green Your School Fund to provide funding for green classroom projects across the country. Teachers can now go on DonorsChoose.org to enter an environmental project and Tom’s will match all donations (up to $2K)! While funding lasts.
Over 250 projects have been funded since the April launch, benefiting over 43,000 students to date. Also, the public can now go to www.GreenSchoolFund.com through October 17, 2016 to vote on 10 exceptional projects that were submitted. One of these will receive $25K in classroom funding.
